A pretty pointelle stitch distinguishes this delicate poncho-style caftan with fluttery sides and a wide neckline that can slip on or off a sun-kissed shoulder. Simultaneously modern and ethereal, it swings easily from cover-up to dress-up (the open knit makes a great backdrop for jewelry). Hip length. Linen/nylon. Imported.
I agree with the other reviewers that the fit is different than pictured, but I sized down two sizes and it is a slim fitting, lace, elegant top! The sleeves are more of a cap sleeve with a ruffle trailing down the upper arm in a very flattering way. Across the bust the fit is tight (which may only work for small busted women), while the middle is more like a lot of ruching and it just meets at high hip length. So, the overall effect is so light, elegant and flattering that it was perfect for hot summer wedding events. Hope that helps others to think creatively about this top! By the way, I have worn both colors several times and not snagged yet. :)
Review 2 for Pointelle Caftan Sweater
Date:June 8, 2013
Not at all like pictured, very fitted, looks more like a Dollie for your table then a sweater, returning ASAP.
I just received this sweater and was very disappointed. It's like 2 doilies sewn together. It's not fluttery - it's fitted and does not look attractive at all, and it would definitely snag on everything. It is going back.
